There has always been something romantic about driving around the city at night.
Looking out the window at the towering buildings, cast in the soft glow of streetlights, has always brought me a sense of peace — they weren’t cold, intimidating constructions of metal, but reminders of a world much greater than my own. They became my center.
Below are some songs that I like to listen to as I cruise around the concrete jungle.
FKA twigs, “Two Weeks”
Kacy Hill, “Foreign Fields”
Travis Scott, “90210 (feat. Kacy Hill)”
The Royal Jesters, “Take Me for a Little While”
BADBADNOTGOOD, “Time Moves Slowly (feat. Sam Herring)”
A$AP Rocky, “Brotha Man (feat. French Montana)”
Kanye West, “No Mistakes”
Thundercat, “Lava Lamp”
Cutting Crew, “(I Just) Died in Your Arms”
Schoolboy Q, “Hell of a Night”
